How to Set Up SPF for Benchmark?

SPF identifies which mail servers are authorized to send emails for a domain. With SPF, if a receiving server checks an SPF record successfully, the sending server is authenticated. If SPF doesn’t check out, it’s forwarded as spam.

In order to specify Benchmark as an authorized email sending source for your domain, you need to add an SPF record for Benchmark. 

Adding an SPF Record for Benchmark

  • Login to your DNS management console 

  • Navigate to Tools & Settings > DNS Template

  • You need to edit the DNS TXT record related to SPF

  • An SPF TXT record for Benchmark will have the following syntax:    TXT    v=spf1 -all

  • Publish this record in your DNS records section for your respective domain. 

NoteIf you don’t have an SPF record previously for your domain, simply publish the above-mentioned record to enable SPF for outgoing emails using Benchmark. If you do have an existing SPF record in your DNS, you need to modify it to include Benchmark, as shown below:

Previous SPF record:  v=spf1 -all

Modified SPF record:  v=spf1 -all

  • Save changes 

  • Wait for 72 hours to allow your DNS to process the changes 

Finally, you can look up your record using our SPF record lookup tool, and enable DMARC for your domains with our DMARC analyzer.
